The new rule book of chivalry

Welcome to the new age urban India couples where

 complexities have started to creep in .Women who in the past

 enjoyed their newly found financial independence ,some of 

them have out passed their partners in terms of paycheck 

badly disturbing the personal equations in the domestic 

economy &they are better off known as "Lets share it 

half" couples 

Once upon a time ,the rule book of 

chivalry had its predefined conventions where the guy used to

 pay the bills on the date ,he used to be the sole responsibility 

bearer &paycheck was never an issue in the day to day 

differences .But that's a pass now,these 

young,ambitious,upwardly mobile couples with their 

big fat salary are sharing equally everything from electricity 

bills ,home rent to of course the expenses on "dinner date"! Its 

their practical solution to avoid arguments &inferiority 

complexes that can take a toll on their sex life too

This new perspective is actually about how gender roles are 

perceived in a society ,both through a woman's &a man's eye .

When a woman thinks that she doesn't believe in stereotypical 

gender roles &man on what should be the power &equation 

issues &differences see a "Most Welcome"sign

Make your own rules,break the same 

when you feel they are an obstacle in 

your relationship,keep the spark alive 

&don't change the"And they lived 

happily ever after..............." to "And 

they lived happily ever after till hers 

salary got a hike"..........sehar


  1. well written and well thought post .

    Great job !

  2. Putting a space between each line makes for very difficult reading.

  3. They should learn to grow up, there is more to life than money.

    There are those women who see men as a meal ticket, there are those who dare not risk a free lunch as it has to be paid for later with sexual favours.

    There is also a deeper problem. Most men are not very bright, they cannot handle a woman who is more intelligent then they are.

  7. That's true in every sense that most of the working class Indian couples are not keenly interested to save their marriages and many of them falling for an early divorce.
    Now here come the complex issue, the gender basics problem, independent point of views.
    Are we going towards the western way where we have seen couples ending up their happy lives due to many reasons they pin point of like, Stress,Financial problems,social and emotional issues and so on.
    Their relationships aren’t falling apart in unique ways.. these couples are unhappy in the same ways everybody else is.

    May be they need some better understanding between each others
    Perhaps,Love is not a feeling. True love and happiness in marriage come from mutual trust and commitment. When you have these two factors, you will be happy through all the ups and downs.
    Couples should work together as partners to find a solution. Regular and healthy communication is the key to a happy married life.
